BU Women can't get it done on the road, lose big

LEWISBURG, Pa.  Host Bucknell (1-1) shot 65 percent (34-54) for the game en route to an 89-48 win over Binghamton (0-2) in a non-conference womens basketball game on Thursday night at the Sojka Pavillion. The game was the first road contest of the season for the Bearcats.

The 89 points is the most the Bearcats have given up in a game since Syracuse scored 90 points on Nov. 26, 2011. The 41-point margin of defeat is the largest in the Bearcats 13-year NCAA Division I era. The previous deficit was 36 points, in a 76-40 setback a Liberty on Dec. 8, 2007.

The tone of the game was set in the opening 20 minutes, as the Bison went up 50-19 at the break. Bucknell shot 65 percent (18-28) and drained seven three pointers in the process. Binghamton, on the other hand, shot just 22 percent in the first half (7-32).
We came out sluggish like we did against Buffalo and gave (Bucknell) too many open looks, head coach Nicole Scholl said. Give Bucknell credit. Out team defense wasnt ready to stop them.

The Bison showed no signs of letting up in the second half, once again shooting 65 percent (17-26). The Bearcats nearly doubled their scoring output, but still shot just 23 percent from the floor (7-30).

Shelby Romaine finished with 25 points, 10 assists, six rebounds and four steals for Bucknell. Audrey Dotson, meanwhile, finished with 22 points.

A bright spot for the Bearcats was the play of junior forward Sherae Swinson, who finished with a team-high 17 points. She is now averaging 14.5 points through two games this season. Sophomore guard Kim Albrecht added 10 points.

Binghamton returns home to face Canisius next Tuesday at 7 p.m.
